3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Draft pour at Whip In. Pours darkest brown nearly black with a thin khaki head that dissipates. Thin foamy lacing clings to the upper glass. Too cold for a smell test. Taste is lightly roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Thick mouthfeel that ends sort of sudsy. Pretty good stout from Independence.

Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while binge-watching House of Cards. Appearance is a moderately thick pitch black with a thin white rim. Aroma of light molasses, chocolate, light sweetness. Taste goes down with a light burn, rich chocolate notes, oats, light hops. Overall it's pretty good.

This was a pretty decent oatmeal stout, but it lacks the smooth, slick character of the oatmeal that I wanted.

12oz bottle, pretty standard, unfortunately I could not find the oatmeal profile here, then again its not often that I can detect the oats, its smooth and easy drinking for 9%

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark tan head. Smells of chocolate, caramel, molasses, light coffee, roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, molasses, coffee. Slight bitterness from the roasted malts I suspect and not from the hops. Medium carbonation with a creamy, slick, really nice mouth feel. 9.2% ABV is there but well hidden. There is some warming on the finish. Overall this is an very nice oatmeal stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to a local BIF. Pours a dark cola brown with no head, just a slight foam. Roasty aroma, some coffee and some fruity aroma of grapes. The taste is typical of the style and the mouthfeel is thick. On the verge of dry but still sweet. Light carbonation.
